Abstract Human milk samples from low-income blacks residing in rural Mississippi and Arkansas and middle-class whites residing in metropolitan Nashville, Tennessee, were analyzed for DDT and its metabolites. The mean total DDT (DDE + DDT) whole milk concentration of 38 samples from indigent blacks between April and September,1974 was 447 ppb (range 59 to 1900 ppb) and the mean of the 14 samples from Nashvillians during the same period was 75 ppb (range 15 to 133 ppb). Seven samples from the black population in June-September 1975 contained a mean total DDT of 323 ppb (range 185-721 ppb). This statistically significant difference in the DDT concentrations in the black and white populations indicates that the indigent blacks are still highly contaminated with pesticides even though the general use of DDT has been banned. Due to the limited amount of information from the donors, no correlation could be made between the DDT concentration and any factors other than race or socioeconomic group.
